A Cheap Way to Play the Smartphone Revolution

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which research analyst Lyons George and industrials editor/analyst Isaac Pino discuss topics around the investing world.

With the smartphone market projected to grow by nearly 20% annually through 2016, opportunistic investors have a chance to grow their money at a comparable clip -- if not faster. In today's edition, Lyons and Isaac discuss Synaptics, a small-cap company that provides smartphone users with the touchscreen technology that keeps them coming back for more. And with strategic relationships with global manufacturers including LG, HTC, and Nokia, Synaptics just might be able to ride the mobile revolution in some of the world's biggest markets.
